I've lost my Mojo but replaced it with Zumba

So, we finally got the internets at home last night.  Well, we got it on Saturday, but we got our wireless set up last night and I was finally able to use my precious lap top again.  I have no pictures of the house yet, but soon - I fucking promise (yeah, just like pictures of Hawaii, right!?)!
Anyhow - I signed up for Hulu Plus - so I can watch my favorite TV shows on our TV through the PlayStation 3 using the Hulu App... ya dig?

I also signed up for a Zumba class through community education - I'll be taking it with a couple of girlfriends once a week starting in roughly a month.  I'm super excited to do it - super scared too.  Zumba is a dance based workout.  I don't really dance, other than in the clubs (and that's more like dirty dancing than anything else) - but I'm excited to learn something new while I get my workout on.  Because of the move and trying to save money, I've cancelled my gym membership based on the acquisition of EA Sport Active for the Wii and a few other workout things I can do at home.  I figure it's better to do the stuff at home, even if I have to buy stuff once, over paying monthly for the gym.  Now I've just got to get the damn Wii hooked up and get my ass moving.  Spring being right around the corner, I hope to start taking advantage of walking outdoors.
Anyhow - the zumba class is going to be interesting...

So this weekend I went out for a friend birthday - Steve and I just met up for a cocktail or two (and by that I mean, I had none and Steve had many).  Not the point ... I was talking with someone I've known on a casual level for several years - we gots to talking and he said to me "Angela, you become more and more reserved every time I see you.  What happened to your craziness?"  This made me sad.  I don't even know what to say about it.
I immediately jumped on the defense and tried to come up with some excuse... oh, blame it on the fact that I have a boyfriend now - he didn't accept that reply.  So I toyed around with a few more and finally settled on the fact that maybe I'm just growing up... which he seemed to congratulate me on.  I wasn't looking for congratulations; I was looking for something I've apparently lost.  It left me feeling out of sorts and, while I know it's okay to grow up, I really hope I haven't lost my true self.
My weekend was spent shopping at Lowe's, comparing paint samples, and having lunch with some family... 5-6-7 years ago it would have been spent drinking and dancing the night away at the club or whichever bar had good music and a dance floor.

I know it's okay to grow up... it just kind of hits you like a ton of bricks when someone calls you out on being lame.

Yep... growing up kind of blows. We were talking about going out for St. Patrick's Day until I realized I work the next morning. And I need my sleep, I'm old!

Let me know how Zumba goes. I really need to start doing SOMETHING to get in shape or my boudoirs are not going to be pretty.

I know EXACTLY how you feel! Starting at age 19, I would always go to clubs here in Cancun and dance on bars, tables, etc. I never drank much, but it was always a good time.

Now when I go to clubs I'm surrounded by 18-year-olds. Even though I'm young at 24, this makes me feel OLD. Plus I've put on weight over the past 4 years, so I feel fatter, older and not as sexy as the 18-year-olds in skintight minidresses gyrating next to me.

I've been going to the gym and losing some weight, so I feel better about myself. I wore a backless top to a club Saturday night and felt pretty hot haha I even danced on some chairs with my girlfriends... so things are looking up!

Oh and my gym is offering Zumba class this week. I'm gonna try it out tomorrow!

Zumba is all over the place now. I know one person who does it and has fun with it.

Ang is all grownz up! I think you've lost yourself when you stop and think, am I happy where I am at in my life and the answer is no. If you are happy, then you are doing exactly what you're supposed to be doing. Hey, M and I played domino's all weekend and had a blast. If that is lame to some, so be it. I think we've all had our crazy carefree behavior in the past and now we've just grown out of it.

I went through it too, many of us do. But being a grown up is a fun adventure and can be kind of crazy too

as someone with a dance background, i dislike zumba bc there's really no discipline to it; its basically just jumping around and shaking your butt...someone who likes club dancing would love it!!
